Nocturne (1917) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - MAY 22, 2015
Keg at Euston Tap, London. Solid black. Light tan head. Whereas some black IPAs taste more like hoppy stouts, this does feel like an IPA in every sense, with just a kiss of ashy black malts to remind you. Otherwise its dominated by lovely fruity grapefruit notes. Good stuff.

20.4.2014. Cola appearance. Aroma has pine, herbs, hops, sth roasted, liquorice. Taste of resinous/piny hops, roasted malts, earthy. Palate is smooth, medium carbonated, medium bodied but surprisingly light. Finish is a mixture of roast, coffee, bitterness and herbs. Nice.

Bottle from Cotteridge Wines; cards on the table Im scared to add a new beer so Im reviewing a retired one with a different ABV, ok dark brown pour velvet beige head, pine and roasted malt hop, pine comes through in the taste but not as massive, dominated by roasted malts, Im enjoying this greatly but the taste doesnt match the aroma, oh it has a zizzy carbonation.

Flaska. I det nrmaste helt svart l med ett stort smutsvitt skum. Underbara dofter och smaker av kaffe, choklad, citrus och rostad malt. I doften ocks en slng av lakrits. Mjuk munknsla. Medelstor beska, medelstma. Ren och skr njutning.
